1:08pm
corners. as far as my comments on gay marriage, i do believe it is between a man and woman. i'm not going to change that. the fact that some people misinterpret what i said when i came up with examples of scary yialgsz on marriage and relationships -- i don't know a whole lot of different ones -- even now, but the fact of the matter is doesn't mean they are all equal. it simply means there is nobody who gets to change the definition of marriage. >> gregg: the doctor stepped in the limelight when he discussed it at national prayer breck in february. >> heather: we are continuing to following the latest developments out of north korea today as the nation steps up its angry rhetoric saying in a quote state of war with south korea one day after releasing images of dictator kim jong un studying

1:16pm
1:17pm
>>. >> heather: time for a quick check of the headlines, doctors are saying south africa leader nelson mandela's condition has improved. he has been treated for pneumonia is spending a fourth day in the hospital. conservatives of world-renowned surgeon ben carson saying he is willing to withdraw at speaker
1:18pm
of john hopkins medical school. this after students and teachers to oust him as speaker following some remarks he made about same-sex marriage. china arriving at launch center today. shuttle will carry three astronauts. it's scheduled to blast off some sometime this summer for china's first orbiting space laboratory. >> gregg: it's been one year since president obama launched a plan for job creation. business start up apps was fast tracked but now there are concerns that it blazed through washington nobody noticed any flaws. brenda buttner, anchor of "bulls and bears", so were there flaws? >> yes. there were flaws. it went really fast and nobody has any measure, did it create jobs? they just love the name.
1:19pm
was a great thing. first thing, it allows hedge funds basically to market email and internet, facebook to more unsophisticated investors. they haven't been able to do that up to this point. it has a thing called crowd funding which mean that people could be the target of bogus internet scams or frauds. they think as small investors buy a part of company. there is some fear that is also a problem. it also temporarily allows some smaller firms to skirt accounting or disclosure rules when they are going public. the idea is let these small companies go public and they will create jobs, but there is no empirical evidence that happens just because something goes public. >> gregg: did anything good happen out of it? >> well, it showed some bipartisan abilities in
1:20pm
washington which is very rare. to be fair, it's -- we can't judge it at this point. if it was designed for companies to go public to be able to sell stock and raise money, it takes a year for a company to have an ipo. we would be seeing it in the upcoming months. >> to jumpstart up business act, the ability to tell whether it works or not? >> yes, exactly. it's kind of like obamacare. they said you'll find about it after we do it. it's kind of what happened here. the only difference that both sides have a stake in this. it's near an election and they had to do something. >> gregg: what about $867 billion stimulus act that occurred immediately after president obama took office. she championed it. it was his stimulus. economists like john taylor at
1:21pm
hoover institution at stanford, it's going to jumpstart the economy. it will kick something. you throw $867 billion into the economy and not have an effect but in the long run could do more damage? >> it comes down to a very basic economic disagreement. some people think government can create jobs. in economics you learn that if government creates jobs, government spends money, it is crowding out the private sector. in some cases, a small amount of stimulus in a bad recession can work, but on this order, we did not see the unemployment or the underemployment rate drop considerably. >> gregg: unemployment has come down. >> it has come down but people have dropped out of the work force and underemployment is still high. >> gregg: which means want? >> people that take part-time jobs, people that drop out of the work force.
1:22pm
yes, they don't see any jobs out there so they won't be looking. >> gregg: is that figure still 22-23 million? >> people are unemployed. the figure is 14 left hand 15% unemployed of that under employment which we look at. frig big number comes out. jobs are being created and government is getting rid of jobs. so the private sector is creating jobs but not on the level. >> gregg: 22 million americans is still a big number. brenda, thanks very much. >> gregg: you can catch more of brenda on "bulls and bears" every saturday morning right here on the fox news channel. >> heather: coming up, as the suspected gunman in the colorado movie massacre gets closer to trial a look at new signs that prosecutors may be preparing to can see the death penalty. >> gregg: many people wondering how seriously our country should
1:23pm
be taking threats from north korea and if diplomacy could ease the escalating tensions coming up. >> it's like an organized crime family running a territory. he is brutal, his father was brutal and grandfather was brutal. i don't see any purpose at all. i really like your new jetta! and you want to buy one like mine because it's so safe, right? yeah... yeah... i know what you've heard -- iihs top safety pick for $159 a month -- but, i wish it was more dangerous, like a monster truck or dune buggy! you can't have the same car as me!

1:28pm
senators overcome a major roadblock on immigration business groups together on a guest worker program, but they stress the deal is not done yet. >> gregg: new indications the shooting suspect in the colorado movie massacre could actually go on trial with his life on the line. d.a. in aurora, colorado will announce whether he will speak the death penalty for james holmes. they rejected a plea deal that was put out pooh by his attorneys that would take execution off the table. dominic with more on this. what are the details of that deal? >> reporter: well, that rejection is really what is leading everybody to believe that the d.a. will announce that he will seek the death penalty. they came up with a so his admission that he killed those people in aurora.
1:29pm
the only option now is for the defense to enter a plea of insanity. while holmes' attorney says his client is sick, defense say it may not stack up when it comes to court. >> why the defense has bled of not guilty by reason of insanity is likely they don't want to give up documents, they don't want to give over their client for an examination because we think there is a lot of premeditation in those documents, a lot of premeditation to show that he wasn't legally insane. >> reporter: prosecution has to prove it was premeditated. it can't get on the hands of notebook that he shared in a psychiatrist. in that book he portrayed violent acts. >> gregg: the court will be looking at spinoff into a fox
1:30pm
news reporter into his mental health. what is happening there? >> reporter: we believe the court will deal with the issue of the source where a foxnews.com existence of a package and contents that were delivered to james holmes's psychiatrist. they wanted to know where the reporter got her information. she will be at the hearing on monday. >> gregg: dominic, thanks. >> heather: north korea warning of a quote, do or die battle against south korea. the latest in a series of angry threats in just this past week. u.s. saying that it takes the rhetoric seriously. brutal regime has nuclear weapons and they have a huge standing army. how concerned should the u.s. be? author of nuclear showdown, north korea takes on the world. he provides more insight.
1:31pm
you also wrote a column that was published that you referred kim jong un, ominous bluster. these threats have become almost predictable. then we have kim jong un who clearly unpredictable himself. is that where the danger lies? >> that is certainly part of the danger. you have to remember he is trying to consolidate his position. he has been in power for less than 16 months. he hasn't been able to do that. he is purging the officials that were loyal to his dad and trying to change the north korean regime itself. at no time since 1949 has a north korean leader had a smaller base of support. that really means he'll do anything to stay in power. >> heather: is that his ultimate goal and the reason for this behavior? the north used deadly force before. how far do you expect they will go? >> i think they will do that
1:32pm
again. basis of legitimacy of this regime has been using force against foreigners. so for them to do that again would actually bolster his position, especially because he has been purging top generals and whenever that happens your military is in a state of flux. he needs the support of those that remain. it's a very fluid situation. >> heather: i threw this question out on twitter. if they wanted to ask and stanley asked, is this a result of internal pressure that he is getting? >> i certainly think so. we have seen all these hinth of general dissatisfaction on the top of the military and along front line commanders. when you have a military that is unhappy -- you have to remember his father put the military at the forefront of the north korean regime. kim jong un is trying to change that the korean workers party at the top.
1:33pm
so the generals are not happy with that. >> heather: i wanted to ask you what we in the u.s. need to be worried about if anything at all. we statement that came from the white house. in part, along with saying north korean military unconstructed, we continue to take additional measures including the plan to increase the u.s. ground base interceptors and early warning and tracking radar and assigning a counter provocation plan. how far is the u.s. willing to go? >> i think we are going to quite far. the provocation plan that brings in the united states not just defending south korea agencies broad-based attack but against low level provocations. so it lowers the threshold what is going on in the korean peninsula. when the joint military exercises ended the end of april
1:34pm
north korea would think of striking when our readiness returns to normal. kim jong un will strike somewhere. >> they released these pictures of map pointing out where they can hit the u.s. mainland. what do we really know about the arsenal they have? >> their missiles can reach alaska. they probably cannot reach the lower 48 states but within three to five years they will be able to do that with a nuclear tipped weapon. we're not worried about longest range missiles we can destroy those on the path. what we're really concerned about and reason the obama administration reversed their policy, is because of north korea's mobile missiles which china has supplied. that makes north korea dangerous and increases their ability to wage nuclear war. >> heather: you say this isn't just a north asia problem? >> because north korea sells everything it makes to the iranians. these missiles and nuclear technology and that reactor that
1:35pm
the israeli destroyed in september 2011 syrian desert, that was north korean reactor paid for the by the iranians. this is also an iran problem. >> heather: keep your eye on it and take it seriously? >> absolutely. >> heather: thank you for joining us. >> gregg: one man is suing his state to carry high powered weapons all in the name of faith. we're going to talk about the religious doctrine he says he to carry an assault rifle whether he has a legitimate case. >> we all heard self-driving cars are the future of transportation, but will they solve our energy problems or just create whole new ones? the capital one cash rewards card

military style weapons, high capacity magazines. >> gregg: he says he does. member of temple shooting august 5th, 2012. >> we didn't object the arbiter of the fact. >> gregg: fortunately we have an objective arbiter of the fact. >> state has to show there is a compelling reason for having the assault weapons ban. clearly the states have shown. >> gregg: compelling reason? >> absolutely. that is where we draw the line. you know, he can't go around carrying this assault rifle pursuant to his religion, but when it comes to your home or place of business or even a church, that is where the line becomes a little fuzzy. whether or not you have a right pursuant to that religion. >> gregg: it's a 500-year-old
1:42pm
religion and he says the assault rifle is an essential element of society now? >> look, that is -- look, you can practice your religion. clearly the state is going to argue and has been successful there is a compelling reason to ban that individual from carrying around assault rifle. that lawsuit is going absolutely nowhere no matter what he claims. >> gregg: and another problem why it is going nowhere? >> he bought the case per se meaning he is representing himself. >> gregg: he couldn't get a lawyer to do it? >> a person that represents themselves has a fool for a client but joking aside, its six-page complaint. first of all. he is another try to shoe horn a second amendment claim into a first amendment bag. of course, because there is no such thing as first amendment gun claim unless they deny your
1:43pm
permit but the reality it's second amendment. >> clearly it's first amendment and second amendment on both, look, first amendment and second amendment. >> it infringes his right to practice his religion. part of his religion is defend himself with a dagger and he claims the assault rifle to fullest extent. >> gregg: have you heard that? >> no, and i think the argument fails. >> let me get back to the dagger thing. for 500 years they have carried this dagger symbolic or useful as a defense weapon. he is try to get that into semi-automatic weapons and that is where he is having trouble. >> if he called me i wouldn't have taken the case. >> gregg: you would have taken the case? >> absolutely. >> gregg: you know, it does invite the question of a larger question of the second amendment
1:44pm
in today's society and especially in the wake of the sikh shooting back in 2012. >> look, right now particularly coming off of that example and newtown tragedy are horrific. to try to eliminate military and assault type weapons but the numbers have been reduced in the last month or so but the reality is an important issue. >> i think there is argument to be made, home, place of business and church to be able to defend. place of business, look at the diamond district in new york, look at 24-hour bodega, these businesses have a right to defend themselves inside the place of business. that is where the lines are drawn. that is where the state may not have a compelling interest. >> gregg: you agree with that? >> i think at the end of the day he pushed it too far. i need a certain type of weapon consistent with 500 years of doctrine.
1:45pm
again, he can protect himself with weapons as long as the argument against him, but i think he has a very big uphill file. he filed in federal court. >> gregg: which means? >> which means they don't suffer fools as busy court. >> gregg: another federal judge is going to kick him out. >> they will get rid of the case. >> gregg: no-nonsense. i learned that first time i appeared there and promptly scolded. [ laughter ] >> gregg: good to see you guys. >> heather: coming up next, march madness heating up as another underdog sends a top seed packing. how the final four is shaping up. and much to celebrate this weekend reaching a milestone during a critical win, sportscaster jim gray joins us live from l.a. next. we went out and asked people a simple question:

state it was really impressive. coach says, don't call it cinderella doesn't beat just one team, they beat the number one and two teams in that division. they beat, of course, gonzaga who was number one last week and ohio state. there is only one flipper for cinderella. >> heather: i don't know. >> now he has to beat louisville and duke. >> heather: who do you pick on that one. and how you were right about carolina. i didn't mention that? >> you are not going to get mad at me this week. >> heather: we'll see. who is your pick? >> the last time the two coaches met it was famous game. all the way back in 1989 between day and patino. he went to the celtics and knicks and louisville has the best team left in the tournament but the best team doesn't always
1:52pm
win. you are putting me on the spot. i'll go with duke. >> heather: oh, we disagree again. i'm saying louisville. >> i'm trying to make you happy. >> gregg: jealous grudge. >> heather: i do. there are two reasons i can't pull for duke, 1992, if anybody knows what i mean by that. you are definitely a carolina fan. two reasons i can't pull for duke. let's move on. >> gregg: you have had your share. >> heather: this is true. the n.b.a., kobe bryant breaking a record. what is going with the lakers. >> they are tied with utah last spot in the west to make the playoffs. you take a shot, kobe bryant moves into fourth place passing wilt chamberlain as the fourth scorer in the history of n.b.a.,
1:53pm
34,000 points plus. he finds himself 858 points away from passing michael jordan. he will be able to do that but surprisingly after the game, he spoke to n.b.a..com. he says that he is going to evaluate at the end of the season with his family and all likelihood next year will be his last year. he is going to make $30 million plus next year. that will be his 18th year in the n.b.a. and kobe bryant figuring at this point that will be enough. >> heather: i don't know. contract negotiations maybe coming around maybe. >> no, i don't think he to slip. he is up there with babe ruth right now and i don't think he wants to be a guy from averaging 28 points a game to a guy that averages 18 or 19. >> heather: speaking of big contracts. this is unbelievable. if you think of this way, a-rod
1:54pm
making more year this money than all of the houston astros and he may not play the first half of the season? >> he has had the hip surgery and going to make $29 million. 13th year in a row that will have the highest salary. if you look had he houston astros switching from the national league, their payroll. all 25 employers when they take on texas in opening night is going to be $19 million. so you have such a great disparity in major league baseball. new york yankees $228 million and los angeles dodgers $216 million one team making $19 million, entire salary for the houston astros and then you have other teams like marlins at $40 million. there is such a business
1:55pm
difference between the big market teams. you can scratch about 22 teams before they start. >> heather: it seems unfair. yankees highest payroll for the 15th straight year. reminds me of that movie money ball. >> that is right. great film. oakland a's won the west and they had a low payroll. >> heather: i have to get this question in. one of our viewers he tweeted in a question, he wanted to know will tiger win the open --, he, will he win the masters? >> this is great time. we have opening day tonight and then we the final four next week. in two weeks we'll have sunday at augusta, trying to win his fifth green jacket. he hasn't won a major since 2008 at torrey pines. to answer your question, i don't have an answer to the question.
1:56pm
tune in and watch. if you can't watch you can listen to me and our crew and final four but at the masters. >> heather: so jealous. what do you think? >> gregg: i think he can do it. he is lights out the best player right now. he has won three tournaments, jim? >> he has won three tournaments this year, six in the last calendar year, three this season. it's just an outstanding what he has been able to do. number one player after not being number one since november of 2010 when he had the big scandal in 2009 thanksgiving. he is coming back from that. he seems to have clear mind. public is wanting to see him play great golf. >> gregg: thanks so much. we'll be right back. measure hap? by the armful? by the barrelful? e carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy,

assistants who was gunned down in a parking lot. he warned whoever difficulty he would catch them and he called them "scum." >> i hope that the people that did this are watching. we are very confident we are going to find you. we will pull you out of whatever hole you are in. we will bring you back. we will let the people of the county prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. >> me spent 23 years in the army before earning the law degree. he and his wife survived by five children including a son who is a police officer in dallas. some wonder if the death is connected to the murder of the chief of the colorado d corrections who was shot when he answered his door march 19. the killer, a white supremacist was killed in a shootout a couple of days later 100 miles from where the latest shootings took place. the authorities say they are taking precautions to protect other old elected officials.
2:03pm
>> it is unnerving to the community at large. that is why we are working to assure the community that we are still providing public safety and we will be able to do that. >> most believe these are not random acts of violence but some kind of campaign targeting members of the law enforcement community. >>heather: very scary for the community. senate graham reacting to the killing saying that more must be done to protect those who keep us safe. >> anything that would make our law enforcement officers safer. obviously this is a criminal enterprise coming after people enforcing the law. anything the local community can do to make lifesaver for those who carry out the law on our behalf, count me in. this clearly is some type of criminal vendetta against the people in law enforcement. >>heather: he said he does not

2:05pm
violence from pyongyang. the united states and south korea conducted annual air power democrats -- drills that included stealth bombers and b-52 bombers. the white house denounced the language and saying that the threats are part of a familiar pattern. former ambassador bomb ton says the mainland may not be concerned as neighboring countries such as south korea and japan. >> these threats while they are not credible in terms of reaching the united states have, however, surpassed what i will call the normal level of north korean rhetoric. his missiles have landed in the pacific ocean east of japan. that happened 15 years ago. the potential, then, the potential destruction is real. >> we hear in representative peter king the former chairman of the house homeland security

2:07pm
of the accident is "under investigation." >>gregg: a major update as bipartisan senators known as the gang of eight appear to have passed a key hurdle attempting for sweeping immigration reform. owe national correspondent has more from washington on that story. >> in spite of a breakthrough on issue of guest workers florida senator rubio says reports that the legislation is finalized of premature. he is one of the gang of eight senators trying to hammer out an agreement and wrote the judiciary committee chairman to make sure they have rigorous public hearings saying in his letter, you have said that delay for delay's sake is a mistake in this matter, and i agree but if the haste in the pursuit of a lasting solution is perhaps even more dangerous to the goals many of us share. two members of the gang of eight, schumer and flake expressed optimism today. >> as senator rubio correctly says, we have said we will not
2:08pm
come to final agreement until we look at all of the legislative language and he correctly is pointing out that language hasn't been fully drafted. >> we are much closer with labor and business growing on this guest worker plan. that doesn't mean we have crossed every i or dotted every t. and senator graham of south dakota said "we have a deal." the white house is also hopeful that a spokesman said "the president continues to be encouraged by progress made by the bipartisan group of senators. we look forward to seeing language when it is introduced and expect legislation to move forward as soon as possible. a crucial agreement last week assures guest workers would be paid no less than the median wage in their industry. >>gregg: thank yous steve, from washington, dc. >> all over the world, christians celebrated the holiest day of the year and in new york city standing room only at st. patrick's cathedral, with

cardinal dolan asking to renew faith and renew a wish for peace. >> enjoy the light and life of easter, like spring conquering easter. >>gregg: another easter tradition taking place just outside st. pat's along manhattan's 5th avenue, the parade, and bonnet festival, those taking part with their sunday best complete with very festive hats. >> even for the four legged type. >> in roam, the pope celebrates an open air mass outside the vatican. conor powell has more on the message and celebrations from jerusalem. >> this is the first easter since becoming pope calling for an end of violence around the

>>gregg: and now a quick check of the headlines. the los angeles police department looking for a 35-year-old wanted in connection with the kidnapping of a 10-year old girl. an accident at an arkansas nuclear plant kills a worker and injures three others when a heavy piece of equipment suddenly fell, the utility says that public, though, is not in danger after the accident. >> in oak," hundreds of parents of an oral surgeon showed up to be tested for h.i.v. and hepatitis after being warned of unsanitary conditions at his clinic. >>heather: looking forward to this segment, self driving cars gaining traction as the future of transportation. it is true, while analysts say that robo cars could solve some of our energy problems on the
2:17pm
one hand, they could also create more problems on the other. brenda is a fox news senior business correspondent and anchor of "bulls and bears" and is here to talk about self-driving cars. >> and i am a gear head, too, i love cars and motorcycles. >>heather: is this the future? will it revolutionize transportation? >> pretend we are in johnny quest land. the idea is human drivers are done and computer or smart cars are smart so they can do all these things that will save us fuel efficiency essentially, and they can drive closer together, they can have drag from the closer cars, the reduction in wind drag itself could reduce or make fuel efficiency go up by 20 percent or 30 percent. imagine what could happen. you are looking for parking and there is one study that says 40
2:18pm
percent of gas in cities is spent looking for parking. there could be an app that would navigate you to a parking spot so you would not spend that time or gas because there would be no accidents, the weight of cars would go from 4,000 pounds to 750 pounds. that would save fuel. >>heather: we showed some video of google and there are companies that are putting this in play. there are some driverless vehicles, sort, on the road all right but on the flip side there could be more demand in energy because people who would not be able to drive, say the elderly, would still be able to use the driverless vehicles. >> there would be so many people who would want to get in on this. people under 16, elderly, disabled, drunk drivers, rather than calling a taxi you get in your car. you could be in your car and go sleeping. there are all the other people that want to get into the cars
2:19pm
and then because it is so easy you can live further away from where you work because you could sleep while you are coming in. that would be a use of, more fuel consumption and no public transportation so there is a lot of pros and cons. >>heather: do you for see this possibly happening in the government putting a lot of money into studying the self-driving vehicles? and implementing programs to put more self driving vehicles on the road? >> you say "study" and the government is on it. we know about the snail sex study going on for $1 million but it is fun just to think about it. i know gregg has a teenager and he probably loves the idea of a computer driving rather than his car. >>gregg: the parallel parking thing has been a problem and we are working on that.
2:20pm

2:27pm
>> everyone is believing that d.a. will announce he will seek the death penalty for holmes by lethal injection. the deal from the against team offered a life term with no parole for his admission he killed those 12 people and injured 70 others. if the prosecution pursues this death sentence for holmes the only option for the defense is a plea of insanity when it comes to standing up in court. the defense team looks like it may not stack up in court that he has mental problems. >> why he has not pleaded guilty by insanity they probably don't want to give over their client for compassion because we think there is a lot of premeditation in the documents, a lost premeditation in what occurred so it would show he was not legally insane. >> getting the hands on the document is crucial. the prosecution has to prove it
2:28pm
was premeditated and trying to wries emfrom the against specifically a notebook holmes shared with a school psychiatrist at the university of colorado. in the book he actually portrayed violent acts. the prosecution may have some batting from the jury in this when it comes because the jury are not usually sympathetic when it comes to insanity claims. >>heather: thank you dominic. >>gregg: a comprehensive immigration bill is a step closer, perhaps, to the nation's top big business and labor groups appear to have reef add -- reached a deal on a program for guest workers which has been a big hurdle but a bipartisan group of senators say the devil could be in the details. >> we are not going to come to a final agreement until we see draft legislative language and we agree on that. we drafted some of it already. the rest of it will be drafted this week. i am very, very optimistic we will have an agreement among the
2:29pm
eight of us next month. >> we are much closer with labor and business agreeing on the guest worker plan. that doesn't mean we have crossed every i or dotted every t but we still have a ways to go in terms of looking at language and making sure that it is everything we thought it would be. we are closer, certainly. >>gregg: now we have doug schoen and a former spokesman for governor jeb bush and publisher of www.safetyreview.com. >> i think there will be a deal, we heard that from senators flake and schumer. the devil is not in the details but it is in the tea party and the republican right. they blocked it in 2006. the republican party is no less adamant in its base that they don't want to do immigration reform. they want to protect the borders
2:30pm
first, and ultimately as their policy and i am not optimistic although it has come time where we need to do immigration refo as jeb bush has himself written in his new book. >>gregg: and his brother tried it back in the second term but it didn't work. >> no, he did try it. president bush did try it and it did fail. the issue that killed it was the issue of the guest worker program and under the new compromise reached between the afl-cio and the chamber of commerce, the leading business group in the country, they will have a best worker program and a new visa allowing 200,000 guest workers. there is cause for encouragement and some hope that there is going to be a comprehensive deal done, however, it still need as certain number of votes and pass in the senate. the final language hasn't been of the asked yet and it will take a lot of work to get that
2:31pm
done. >>gregg: it is interesting not just on immigration but gay marriage, and now republicans are said to be coming around. is that an implicit recognition, those social issues really have hurt the party? >> they have hurt the party but, again, there is recognition at the elite level, and their autopsy suggested it was a problem. i believe the writtens need toen inclusive. the only problem is the base of the party on gay marriage and on immigration reform is not as convinced as i am and, perhaps, the leadership is. the republicans are still in a degree of chaos. they have yet to sort themselves out and these are two big reasons. >>gregg: are republicans at sea on social issues? >> no, i don't think republicans are at sea. the biggest issue that decided the recent elections were issues
2:32pm
of the economy. social issues are emotional issues, issues like immigration, like abortion, like gun rights, like gay marriage, and we have a diverse party. we have a last views on the issues. of course, the base of our party are social conservative would defend the traditional notion of marriage who also believe in gun ownership and who have a very law and order view on immigration issues. overtime, we will have to decide as a party, as republicans, what is the position of the party. >>gregg: are you surprised the afl-cio and the chamber of commerce have come together on this? regardless of what the senate votes or the house of representatives votes these are two big groups that normally are at odds. >> it doesn't surprise me the chamber of commerce would come around because there is wide-spread recognition that business, both big and small, needs guest workers do do a lot of jobs that americans either can or won't do.
2:33pm
i am somewhat surprised that the afl-cio came around with 8 percent or close to 8 percent unemployment in america but it is a very good thing and it is a sign of, hopefully, a bipartisan compromise we will see in the future. >>gregg: do you agree? >> i do. i do. i'm encouraged that the afl-cio came around because these are workers who are entry level workers low-wage type workers, the types of workers that you would think the afl-cio would not want to have any type of a deal on. it shows there is a lost momentum not just with the gang of eight or with the members of congress but outside of congress when you have these type of powerful and influential groups coming together, bridging the divide, to reach a compromise, it is a good sign that there is moment you will and we will have comprehensive immigration reform and as a republican that is a good thing to get this issue address asked move to other issues. >>gregg: justin, who is on the front burner on this?
2:34pm
is it rubio? is it rand paul? don't say jeb bush. >> i won't say jeb bush but he came out with a bush that got a lot of attention. >>gregg: he got a lot criticism for not handling it very well also. >> on the issue of whether there should be a path to citizenship or residency. look, senator marco rubio is part of the gang of eight, he is hispanic, cuban american, republican, a young rising star in the republican party and he is one of the up and coming senators who is showing real leadership for the republican party in congress and if comprehensive immigration reform gets done, republican senator from florida, marco rubio, will have had a big hand in getting it by. >>gregg: doug, you are a numbers guy but somewhere around 20 percent is what republicans got on the hispanic vote or was
2:35pm
it less? >> about 25 percent. >>gregg: are they ever going do make any inroads in. >> if they don't do immigration reform, if they don't provide a meaningful pathway to citizenship for those who is come here and if they don't have an agenda that stresses empower ment and traditional values aimed at hispanic community, no, they when. just din and his boss are saying the right things, but the party itself has not come around. it is great that marco rubio and rand palm have embraced immigration reform but bottom line, the party and justin would acknowledge this, has a long way to go before the issues are dealt with. >>gregg: can the republican party ever win the hispanic vote? >> absolutely. step one is to be part of the solution on comprehensive immigration reform. that is step one. step two, is to have the kind of
2:36pm
inclusive outreach of thes that show the republican party is a party of inclusion and issues you talked about before, traditional values issue and economic issues are issues that i think if republicans can communicate when the reform issue is behind us, hispanics in the united states will be very receptive to republican candidacies. we have a number of republicans like rubio and ted cruz and others who are succeeding as senators in national politics. >>gregg: you didn't say jeb bush? >> he is bilingual but not of hispanic origin but as a republican he did appeal and can appeal to hispanic constituencies around the country as he has done in florida. very obviousfully there and as two terms as governor. it can be done. >>gregg: he is bilingual and an attractive candidate for the republican party. we will see if he decides to run. >> justin and doug, as always,
